Opportunities in research sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Summer Research Fellowship Program are available to medical students in their first and second years at RWJMS. Under the guidance of faculty, students conduct short-term research projects in selected areas of basic and clinical investigation. The objective of this program is to further acquaint students with scientific methodology and enhance their analytic and laboratory skills. The rationale for such a program is that exposure to a superior research environment will ultimately result in better and more able physicians.
